Posted By on Tue, Oct 28, 2008 at 4:46 PM

The campaign to pass a state lottery has announced that it raised more than $185,000 in October. Here's the financial report.

Major contributions include $75,000 from John and Patricia Bailey, who underwrote most of the petition drive to put the amendment on the ballot; $50,000 from John Bailey's father, Ted Bailey; $10,000 from John Tyson, the Tyson Foods chairman; $25,000 from J.B. Pritzker, described as an "education philanthropist"; $20,000 from scrap metals dealer Harold Tenenbaum; $1,000 from Jennings Osborne, who needs no introduction, and $19,053 in in-kind TV production work by the Dempsey Film Group and $2,500 in-kind from Aristotle for website work.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
